Inspections Find Some Hospitality Employers Still Underpay Workers

Released by Department of Labour on 06 June 2008

Despite the existence of a law stipulating a minimum wage for hospitality workers in the country, results of the latest nationwide Labour inspections of the sector suggest a large number of employers are still disregarding the legislation.

 

Figures released by the Labour Department this week show that of the 3191 hospitality workplaces inspected during the week-long scrutiny, only 1 874 employers were found to be complying, while 1 313 transgress – resulting in 403 issued with contravention notices, while operations had to be halted at 10 workplaces until they improve. Three of the employers – two in Gauteng and one in Mpumalanga are now facing prosecution as a result of the raids.

 

Of the total number of workplaces visited, 403 employers were also charged with serious contravention of occupational health and safety measures.
